Purple bruise on thigh, no pain. Concerned

I have this strange circular bruise type thing on my front thigh. Its a light purple. I have noticed it for a couple of weeks and it does not change in color. Nor, does it have any pain to it whatsoever. There isn t any opening wounds near it or on it. Tonight, when i was in the shower, I noticed it was extremely more noticeable in color and shape, so i believe the hot water brings the blood up to the surface of my skin and makes it stand out more.. But, I am really getting concerned as to what this could be. Please help! Thank you!

Thanks for the query,

Bruise without any symptom are usually associated with low platelet.

Please get platelet levels checked.

Dont worry about the bruise.

Usually it takes around 2 weeks for the bruise to heal,

you can use oint thrombophobe to get a faster relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
